At the G-8 summit, President Bush grabs German Chancellor Angela Merkel from behind and gives her a quick massage before rushing off. Chancellor Merkel is not amused.

341. But HE's the decider... and the drinker
They may tell him what to say, but there's no way his people can tell this imperious little shit that he can't drink. I'm pretty sure they let him have a few "for medicinal purposes", with those constant trips to Crawford to allow him to get really hammered.

There is no way that boy isn't liquored up in those photos. He's acted shitfaced the entire time he's been there.

466. You're right, geardaddy; the expression really gives it away
This is a man who's been entirely divorced from his inhibitions and any sense of impropriety whatsoever. He wanted to put his hands on that woman and he did it, automatically, like some sort of robot. Anyone who has any experience with an alcoholic knows the behavior and that robotic look on the face. His behavior has been so inappropriate over the last few days that it can only be explained by drink/drugs. NO SOBER PERSON ACTS THE WAY HE DOES, regardless of their level of intelligence, unless they've been seriously head-injured. And whether his behavior is due to a head injury or substance abuse, he is clearly unfit to lead.

I honestly think that his handlers don't care how drunk or drugged-up he gets, except that they give him constant escapes to Crawford to get so completely trashed that he passes out entirely. His handlers know that they have the national news media to ignore/dismiss/explain away his actions.

Is it necessary to attribute constant substance abuse to him? Sort of alienates you from 99% of American who think that accusation is silly.

231. He has a history of patting bald men without permission... now this too!
Bush has this frat-boy sense of humor with a power trip twist to it. Every time he sees a bald person, he can't help himself: he has to humiliate that person in public, pat and rub their bald heads, do his stupid-ass pantomimes for the cameras. Check out this collection of photos of this bizarre behavior:

http://juliusblog.blogspot.com/2004_04_01_juliusblog_ar...





It's a power trip, because he knows if he wasn't top-monkey he couldn't get away with it.

Now he offers unrequited massages to female foreign leaders, out of the blue, just cause he can.

This is creepy.

320. I linked to your collection bush idiocy. One was particularly offensive --
Two, actually -- those of President Trainable rubbing the little Black boy's head. My mother tells the story of when she was in college (in early 60's PA); she had a roommate from the South who -- without warning, permission, etc. -- would rub Black students' heads for luck. Why is it so easy to imagine this fucktard catching a glimpse of a Black boy with a buzz cut and thinking "Ahm a-gonna get me some good luck a-rubbin' this li'l pickaninny's hee-id! Ain't no one's a-gonna stop me! Cuz I'se th' Preznint!" Please, Lord, give him the avian flu.

213. Maybe it has something to do with this.......
Georgie giving Angela a little shake down? Wonder what he wants?
This is from the transcript of the Bush and Blair show....

http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/20...

Blair, standing over Bush as the president eats, tries to engage on the stalled global trade negotiations.

Blair : On this trade thing . . .

Some of the ensuing conversation is inaudible. Blair evidently wants Bush to make a statement on the talks.

Bush : If you want me to. I just want some movement. Yesterday, I didn't see much movement. The desire's to move.

Blair : No, no there's not. It may be that it's impossible.

Bush : I'll be glad to say it. Who's introducing me?

Blair : Angela.

Bush : Tell her to call on me. Tell her to put me on the spot.

Bush then changes the subject, presumably to a gift Blair must have given him for his recent 60th birthday.

Bush : Thanks for the sweater. Awfully thoughtful of you. I know you picked it out yourself.



So what the hell is that suppose to mean? :shrug:

her body language is SCREAMING "Don't touch me you asshole, WTF are you DOING?!?!?!"

Not only did it scream that, she was completely offended and repulsed...I have used the exact same body language myself, and seen it a thousand times in my long work career.

He is completely condescending toward women..my GOD this was basically Germany's PRESIDENT..he would not have done this if she was a man...not even thought to do it...he put her right in her place in his own mind....

What a complete utter idiotic asshole of a jerk. Beyond.

sexual harassment. No sense, no manners, no sense of decorum. It is a great embarrassment to me to think that he represents our country on the international scene.

He IS a textbook psychopath and yes, he SHOULD be declared non compos mentis and sent to get treatment, not be allowed to run roughshod over the entire world like it's his personal plaything. Our LOOOOOONG national nightmare continues! :cry:

He looks like a walkin' zombie lost to some inner demonic turmoil, only marginally conscious of what he's doing. And this man, folks, has his finger on the nuclear trigger (or "nukular", as they say down home where Bush is from).

167. That sounds very plausible
So this man has reverted to out-and-out drunkenness, retreated to the world of denial, diminished judgment, and brakeless emotive impulse. Nice. There is a clause in the Constitution that would allow for Bush's immediate removal of power if the claim is made that he's become incompetent, subject to congressional review after 60 days. Only thing is, it can only be invoked by the Vice President seconded by two Cabinet members (or something like that). It couldn't be worse, with Cheney at the helm (since he's the power behind figurehead Bush), but it certainly doesn't make anything better.

That stunt is so over the top, he had to have been drunk. Total impulse, on autopilot. Maybe his meds are reacting with the alcohol, but this trip has been long bizarrefest. The world is going to hell and Bush seems to think this is one big parrrrrty.

A "That's it!" moment. This has to be some kind of a wakeup call. Even the true believers have to see it. Quick, remove this guy from public sight.

This sort of thing has been going on for years. Wonder why we're being shown it now?

He looks drunk to me, too. Our President -- the man who represents our country to the rest of the world -- is drunk at a G8 Meeting and running around creating mayhem. To paraphrase one of my favorite bumper-stickers, if you don't feel ashamed, you're not paying attention.

What a disgrace.

I've reflected on that every time the moron says it the same way. I never liked it when Carter said it (I love Carter, though) and I hate it when the moron says it.

422. I don't think he does have his finger on the trigger
I was taken aback when Cheney went to Afghanistan some time back
and the MSM actually said that he had a person with him carrying
the nuclear football. Cheney will do the button pushing. Remember
that it was Cheney who ordered planes to be shot down on 9-11? That's
the president's call.

The man needs to be sent to the funny farm ASAP .... that is the move of a mentally ill
person.

When he grabs the President of China you think he has hit the bottom but no.
When he steals elections, money and lies to the American people but then talks
about "freedom & democracy" in other countries your gag reflex goes into action.
When he talks "shit" @ a G 8 summit you think he might have never go lower.
When he talks about the American dream of free voting and stops 60,000 Africans
Americans from voting in Florida and 375,000 from voting in Ohio the taste of spit up
is in your mouth.
But this? To a freely elected multi-lingual leader of Germany ..... But Christ

is bigger than US personal space. They don't give hugs, but instead shake your hand. Merkel must have felt like she had been slimed. Incidently, Bild is a cross between the old Life magazine and a tabloid. But it often has lots of interesting stuff.

Gad, is that man a total embarassment.

175. LA Times reported it (sort of):
Russia's Time to Shine on World Stage
Huge mansions and ceremonious greetings at a palace add sparkle to the G-8 summit.
By James Gerstenzang, Times Staff Writer
July 17, 2006

... It's safe to say the former chancellor never got the treatment Merkel received from the president.

Entering the meeting room, as relayed by a Russian television camera, Bush headed directly behind the chancellor, reached out and, placing both hands on the collar of her gold jacket, gave her a short massage just below the neck.

She smiled ...

when he thinks you're pissed at him, sneaks up and massages your shoulders. I hope The Daily Show has this one.

93. yeah
my sleezy stepfather used to like to do that unwanted neck massaging thing too when he had too much to drink and was commandeered by his primitive brain. It was a condescending pawing gesture, an irritation. I felt my skin crawl just like the chancellor's obviously did, when viewing these pix.

She throws up her arms like "Eeeek! Get yer hands off me!"

In fact, most people would have that reaction if accosted from behind by someone like that. I'm sure they are tense in those meetings, and to have someone just grab her from behind must have freaked her out.

As someone said upthread, what do you think would've happened if someone did that to Bush?

Tackled by Secret Service, knocked to floor, crushed, pummelled, and dragged to "secure" car. Not seen again for days, assuming they were someone important enough to be seen again at all.

Where were Merkel's bodyguards? Oh, yeah, they were assuming she didn't need protection from OTHER LEADERS.

Well, NOW THEY KNOW BETTER. A SECOND INCIDENT WOULD NOT BE TOLERATED.

Though i think it would've been more comprehensible had he rasperried that belly. Who hasn't done that? But he loooked so darn serious... my question is, was Putin born in the countryside or in the city? Seems like your average "uncle Mikhail" type behavior, a wacky yet affable family member you see at holidays... on the farm. anyway... you're not sicko... but i didn't think it looked cute, kinda sad. Like he missed his kid, or was remembering being a kid, or something...

whatever... certainly not a big deal IMHO.

Russian culture is very different, men openly kiss each other and nobody in the right mind would call them homosexuals. They are much closer together as a society and brotherhood. America was built on individuals, Russian Empire was built on collective work and the feeling of the shoulder of the guy next to you.
So kissing a child is completely a norm in Russia, Russian newspapers don't make a fuss about it, only American, where pedophile problems have completely ran out of hand.

79. LA TIMES PROPAGANDA!!!!! ========>
From: http://www.latimes.com/news/printedition/asection/la-fg...

It was a lesson in body language.

On his way here, the president spent much of Thursday with Merkel in her Bundestag district in northeastern Germany, building on a friendship that began with her earlier visit to the White House, a welcome guest after her conservative coalition turned Gerhard Schroeder out of office last fall. Schroeder's opposition to the war in Iraq had made him a thorn in Bush's side.

It's safe to say the former chancellor never got the treatment Merkel received from the president.

Entering the meeting room, as relayed by a Russian television camera, Bush headed directly behind the chancellor, reached out and, placing both hands on the collar of her gold jacket, gave her a short massage just below the neck.

She smiled.

384. Is there a longer video?
As I watched the one video sample it did strike me that it looke like she started to smile over her shoulder at Bush as he walked away but the video ended too quick to know. It might have been a nervous smile or an embarrased smile or a "Don't take offense I just don't want to be massaged now" smile, but it looked like the start of a smile.

That might be the expression the LA Times is referring to and not the disturbed look she had at the moment W had his hands on her.

A longer video would answer that.

92. Make sure you alienate the few world leaders who don't despise you yet
Almost got an elbow in the nuts in the process. Good one, fratboy!

A couple of decades ago I worked with a woman who, in the middle of the floor in a large room with a few co-workers around, was grabbed from behind by this extreme creep who was one of the head honchos of the company. He apparently thought his third lunchtime martini had transformed him from a slimy, dandruff-shouldered, middle-aged putz into an irresistible Lothario. He thought he could get away with it because there were a bunch of people around, and tried to pass it off as a playful gesture. Totally unintimidated, without missing a beat in her conversation, my colleague instinctively gave him a hard elbow jab to the ribs. He grabbed his stomach, said "Oof!" and everybody laughed at him.

She was one of the coolest and sharpest people working in that hellish establishment, and went on to a great career. The creep who grabbed her is almost certainly dead by now.

Interesting question and I shudder to think what would have happened if they had gone for their guns. There might have been a real gunfight between the Secret Service and their German counterparts and wow! I shudder to think what would have happened afterward.

Gee, ain't in wonderful, though? A drunken, stumble-bum, ass-grabbing, flaming right-wing fratboy as President. Every time I see this kind of crap on the TV, it's a race between weeping and gagging...

137. No, it's being jokey
Liebes-Attacke means literally "love attack," but with the nuance it means something like a sudden infatuation, something like getting hit by Cupid's arrow; I'm not sure we have a similar term in English, maybe moonstruck or something like that. But it's full of double-entendre. The point is that Bush is a kind of weirdo warmonger; that's why they use the somewhat weird term Liebes-Attacke, the term uberrascht, which has both military and social connotations, and, of course, "blitz."

115. Bush didn't act this crazy a few years ago. He can't face the reality of
his presidency. He knows he will become an infamous historical character (maybe even the person judged most responsible for the fall of the American empire).

He's totally fucking nuts, with no sense of proper social interaction fitting his position. It's almost as if he's denying to himself that he's the President of the United States; he escapes into some fantasy world where he's just your average jerk.

with all of the secrecy in this administration and the way he's been sealed off from the public. Every now and then, the truth slips through. At the second debate against Kerry, Bush nearly attacked the moderator, if you recall. Then when Bush appeared on the David Letterman show, he kept using a woman's piece of clothing to wipe his glasses, as though her shawl was his tissue paper. And wasn't there some incident involving the Queen of England? I don't quite remember the details.

261. The Bush faux pas with the Queen was written about in Salon.com
Apparently, several years ago when Bush was still a young man, the Queen came to visit his family. Mom and Dad forbade George to speak to the Queen because apparently they didn't know what might come out of his mouth. Bush came to the dinner table wearing cowboy boots with writing on them saying "God Save The Queen". He proudly showed his boots to the Queen at the dinner table and instead of taking offense, the Queen asked George if he was the black sheep in his family. He said that he was. Then he asked the Queen "who's the black sheep in your family?"

And there was a more recent incident, with President Bush visiting Buckingham Palace. He refused to use the Royal Family's Palace chefs but insisted on having his own cooks cook his own food. And the Bush entourage apparently destroyed an historic old garden on the Palace grounds with all of the directional signs they planted.

125. SEXUAL HARASSMENT
Surely he would not have dared to do that to a man. Merkel thinks she is about to be strangled. Bush's attack on Merkel was a sexist gesture intended subconsciously if not consciously to remind Merkel of her place as a woman. Her smile at the end is one of relief that she is still alive. She looks at her neighbor as if to confide, "Oh, well. Just more proof that Bush is insane. Might as well laugh it off."

I fear that Bush is pushing Europeans especially Germany into the arms of Putin -- literally perhaps. Who else is strong enough to protect Merkel from Bush's unwanted "advances"?

What Bush did is, at the very least, a terrible insult. Bush has completely gone off the deep end. He no longer has any control over his behavior. He is no longer able to conform his conduct to the acceptable norms of his environment. We're in deep . . . ., oh, you know, that word that Bush used so appropriately.

Edited on Mon Jul-17-06 11:51 PM by calmblueocean
It's just really odd to me that so many people look at this and laugh it off. Imagine your Mom was at work, and had a big presentation to make in front of your company's corporate officers, and another presenter for a different company came up behind her and put his hands on her and pulled the same stunt George just pulled in front of everyone -- in front of the freaking cameras, for god's sake -- would you expect your Mom to find it funny?

You'd recognize it then for what it was: a show of domination.

It's not sexual, but it's definitely sexist. The very idea that he would think he had the *right* to walk up behind another nation's world leader and put his hands on her in that way just appalls me. It's beyond embarrassing. It pisses me off that this guy thinks he can just grope anyone in the room, and half the fucking country will laugh and cheer this frat boy asshole on.

318. Yep, I've been waiting for it, too. The recognition that this is a show
of dominance, not necessarily a sexual thing. It's sexual in that many asshole men like Bush think that any woman, no matter her position in life, exists simply for him to grope when he gets the urge. But it is also a way to tell that woman that she is always, always, subject to his physical power, no matter what.

Honestly, I feel like puking, because I am beyond embarrassed. I'm howling for this asshole's blood. Someone impeach this maniac!!!

Just because he was born with hands, doesn't mean he has the right to put them all over other people. We already know he has problems understanding personal space since he's constantly slobbering over every bald male head he comes across but come the hell on already!

Many women feel very uncomfortable receiving a random shoulder massage from colleagues. It's unprofessional, even more embarrassing when it happens in front of other colleagues and it's a violation of personal space. It's fucking creepy.

This settles it for me. He's a drunk asshole sociopath. It's the only thing that makes sense.

Look at his expression. He's not even there. It's like it's an impulsive gesture and then he just moves on like he's in a daze. I think he's suffering from some form of dementia.

160. In view of these pics, check out this article by Fred Barnes, no less
Bush's Fab Five
The president's favorite foreign leaders.
by Fred Barnes

PRESIDENT BUSH, en route to last weekend's G8 summit in Russia, paused for a day in what used to be Communist East Germany, where he learned from German chancellor Angela Merkel the proper way to carve a roasted boar.

Earlier in the day she and Bush had sat in front of a fireplace in the town hall of Stralsund, Merkel's hometown, and chatted. "It's a little warm for a fire," Bush noted, though there was no fire going in the fireplace. They conferred privately past the scheduled time for their joint press conference. At the press event, the president referred to Merkel as "Angela." He said: "We found that there is a lot that we agree on."

Of course, there is. Bush knew this from her visit to Washington last January, shortly after she had become head of a new Christian Democrat-led government in Germany. Following talks at the White House, Merkel predicted their meeting "will open up, also, a new chapter, as I hope, in our relationship"--the one between Germany and the United States. And it did.

Merkel is one of Bush's favorite foreign leaders

repukes wouldn't have bothered going through the impeachment process. They'd have arranged for the guys in the white coats to show up, put him in a straight jacket, and take him away. Then they would have loosened his restraints just enough for him to sign his name on a letter of resignation.

She smiled."

This man has no sense of boundaries, no sense of decency and what is proper etiquitte and he calls himself a leader? This is so beyond inappropriate! Remember, this is the workplace! She is the leader of one of the largest economies in Europe! Would he do this to any male? And even if he did, its completely inappropriate.

I am beyond words...there is nothing about this man that surprises or shocks me anymore...until something like this, and then for a second, I'm shocked and disgusted... :puke:

208. Alarming
If the Emperor is really drunk, as Smoorgatz suggested, I find the thought disturbing. The President of the United States, with his finger on The Button, responsible (in part) for international relations and lawmaking, drunk?

I think that Duh-bya is a disturbed man. Especially after reading Bush on the Couch. The sooner we can get him out of power, even if that means Cheney in charge, the better for America. I'm completely serious, and I don't care if some Freeper reads this and says "you're a traitor". He's gonna take this country down.

214. I think we can erase any doubts of a mental disorder now
This man is seriously disturbed.

-Total lack of compassion
-Obsession with rubbing the pates of bald-headed men
-Nervous tics (e.g. "Hula Jaw")
-Inappropriate comments ("I thought you were talking about the pig")
-Zero admission of faults
-Paranoid fear of the unknown (no "unscreened audiences")
-Extrememly averse to any criticism (loyalty oaths)

Forget the impeachment, call a psychiatrist and get this man committed.

Seriously.

Me, I love watching the retard flop. One, it's good for the ol' ticker to laugh. Two, the less we respect politicians, the less power they have over us. Three, it's good for the anti-imperialist cause that the empire is seen as being led by a complete fucking monkey with uncontrollable hands.

Keep feeling up those foreign leaders, Bushie Boy. And next time, do it from the front!

223. My guess is that she WAS amused.
After looking at pictures of the two of them holding hands together at the summit and her smiling at him with a genuine look of happiness on her face, my guess would be that she and he now consider themselves "buddies". I think his little jokey massage thing was Bush's way of trying to be endearing to her in a playful way (personally, I think it's a little bit flirty even).

I know if it were me, I would have felt disrespected if someone in my professional world assumed I would enjoy a surprise play-massage while I was talking to someone else. There's a psychological aspect to it, like a power/control aspect underneath the surface.

But maybe she didn't feel that way. God I hope not, how embarrassing if she did.

228. Bush quote in last picture: "She's probably a lesbo!"
What a frat-boy, unprofessional, childish, impolite behavior. What an embarrassment!

Not only it looks like she got offended by the unrequited "massage", but it also scared the hell outta her. You don't expect that in such a high level meeting. She looks definitively started by the unexpected gesture.

What did he expect she would do? Does he think the entire planet is his own frat house?

On the positive side, at least he didn't grab her boobs or gave her a nipple twister. Who knows!

300. Ain't nothing like having a total stranger come up and start touching
you to make you feel lousy. Bush may think he's being friendly. I'm sure Merkel views it as a lack of respect and in all probability wanted to haul off and hit him.

303. Take a good long look at Bush's face.
He is not smiling or laughing, his face is 'drawn', puffy under the eyes, blank look to his eyes and his mouth and lips are slack(drooping). He is not in control. No joke.

322. I had a boss that did that to a lot of us at a particular office job
I had 15 years ago. I was young then (as we most were), and we thought he was just a touchy/feely person. Come to find out, as time went on, the hands would come around a little more (with some of us). I had another boss that when I was bending over my female boss's desk showing her some figures, he walked right up to me and pushed his pelvis up against my backside. I jumped because I thought who in the Hell was touching my backside. He and my female boss kind of chuckled and I asked him if I was crowding him. This went on all the time in the offices. Sexual harrassment? Probably, but who could afford to lose their jobs? Most of us just laughed it off and went on. It was rather humiliating as well.

It was a clothing manufacturing company. I worked in Cost Accounting in the main offices of the company for the comptroller of the company. The distribution center was right behind the main offices for the whole company. Any of this sound familiar to you?

That should tell you how old I was when this was going on as we do not have any clothing manufacturers in the US anymore . . .do we?

perhaps all elected officials in the united states should be drug and alcohol tested every day before being allowed "on the job site" as it be...hell we are testing junior high football players and big box store workers so why not test the shakers and movers of the seats of gument? this would make getting quorums to pass regressive legislation much harder.

343. Don't get it wrong guys
This is no attack, just the level they stand. If she would have known who was approaching than she
would have been lucky to get a touch from her new master...

When Merkel first visited bush after her "election" it was clear to me that this woman is
as submissive to "mighty" men as condi is. She lived in a dictatorship in East Germany and was
loyal to Honecker as well.

She likes them to much and this is the gesture to the words bush have spoken after their
BBQ. He actually said: "Her heart is filled with humbleness!"

After reading that I was and am convinced that now we are right in trouble.

Merkel is a disaster for my country and she is NOT a victim of bushes attack. She already acts
as your neocons do. Give tax cuts to the rich and forget about the poor people, cutting the
social security, the educational sector also and rising betterment levy from 16 ot 19%.

She was in love with Kohl and he grew her up. Now a mightier dumb ass has entered her horizon,
and he plays hardball with the world and believe me.

SHE IS NOT WITH THE TERRORISTS :spank:

356. Being a woman, having experienced this sort of thing, I know..
he's made her very uncomfortable with his touching her in such a personal way, which is not only disrespectful, it's certainly out of place for such a setting. Her body language says same, particularly when she raises her arms in effort to release him (it says get your claws off me). He has zilch tact; and, apparently, he thinks he can wrangle these people like cows (after all, he's a cowboy), a subliminal message which says "I'm in control here" -- his attempts to win friends at the summit, demonstrated by such odd behavior, tell me he's actually extremely uncomfortable, himself, feels out of place, doesn't know how to handle himself in stressful situations (for him, meeting with world leaders is stressful, something he avoided for a long time -- just look at his tense face and how, before he finishes with her, he's looking for his next victim). He has to always revert back to his comfort zone, that of "head cheerleader," a clown. His conduct reflects very poor judgment.

Edited on Wed Jul-19-06 07:56 AM by sangfroid
The whole way he's blown off this meeting with all the weird BS has the distinct aroma of passive-aggressive dominance. He treats everyone with that psychotic pseudo-cowboy bonhomie that says "Hey little buddy, we're friends, right? Cuz if we ain't friends, we're enemies, and I'd just hate to have to get mean; you wouldn't like that..."

He's a brain-dead fratboy, but his staff isn't, and I'm thinking some of the more "cunning" (I almost typed "smarter", but my computer won't let me use that word in relation to this White House) back-room folks are using the old Crazy Nixon Approach used during the Vietnam negotiations in Paris: "Give the POTUS whatever he wants; he's crazier than a shithouse rat and his finger is on the button."

Either that or the Chimp has gone flat-out bug insane, Cheney can't control him anymore and someone really needs to activiate the 25th Amendment.

She needs the "Carlos Mencia" office chair...

Did anybody see Carlos when he did that skit about the unwanted back rub from the office creep?

As he came up behind the woman to rub her shoulders, she hit F9 on her keyboard and out from the back of her chair came a shin with a shoe on it and it kicked the dude right in the nuts, real hard... Any woman subjected to being around the Chimp should be given this new, special chair...

She probably didn't want the Chimp hands on her because she was afraid her blaser would be ruined by all the dripping blood...

Combine this behavior (social improprieties) with his cognitive disabilities and that's what you have. He may be drunk, too, I don't know.

This is serious, and to have him in the position he's in, even tho' we know he's not the preznit, is just asking for more trouble on the world stage.

Bush needs a medical/psychological evaluation. Please!!

But I think he is not that ill he is not human either, these are lizards with

no empathy nor human feelings just wanting to dominate and exploit this world and than looking

for a new one...

455. Not that the boy-king wouldn't have been considered at-risk
given his reportedly promiscuous behavior but I don't think anyone needs to progress to tertiary-stage syphilis these days. :shrug:

414. MY NEW THEORY: It would explain the serious, non-flirty face,
the INTENSE determination, and the brevity.
Plus, it is something we've seen Bush perform before:

THE LAYING ON OF HANDS.

I'm being totally serious. I think Bush sees himself as a conduit from God, much like a divine Right King would.

415. My NEW theory that would explain the brevity, the determination, and the
seriousness of purpose:

The LAYING ON OF HANDS.

I mean this. Bush views himself as a conduit of God, as befits a Divine Right King.
And we've seen him do this before.

A shoulder massage.

On the Chancellor of the Federal Republic of Germany.

Un-frapping-believable. I'm absolutely dumbstruck and, as an American, thoroughly humiliated.

What can I say? Somewhere in Texas, a massage parlor is missing a masseur.

443. You know, some numbnuts did that to me at work once
Edited on Tue Jul-18-06 01:27 PM by geniph
I don't know what the hell he was THINKING - maybe he thought it was flirting, the moron. He came quietly up behind me and put his HANDS ON MY NECK. Unfortunately for him, I a) am the youngest of 13, b) am a paranoid shithead, and c) had just completed a self-defense class. One of the things they taught us in the class was how to break a chokehold applied from behind. He scared the bejesus out of me, so I reacted instinctively - I shot a stiff arm up between his arms, as I suddenly stood and turned.

I bloodied his nose.

He never came within ten feet of me again. I felt slightly sorry for the bloody nose, but WHAT the HELL was he thinking? You don't touch people like that at work!

And THIS fecking eejit...my dawg, I am still in shock. I saw this last night and my brain still cannot process this. The fucker looks three sheets to the wind, and looks confused and dumbfounded when she reacts with obvious horror (and someone offscreen obviously said something to him, from the look on his idiot mug). "You mean she didn't WANT me to give her a neck rub in front of the entire G-8 summit? But she's just a GIRL." I only wish Merkel had reacted the same way I did.

Can you even begin to imagine the freeper reaction if Clinton had done this?

Gawd help us. This is the fecking leader of the fecking free world. And he's a shitfaced clueless overaged frat boy.

:scared:

On edit - it wouldn't surprise me if his "buddy" Putin gave him the bottle of vodka that started the whole humiliating embarrassing debacle - then sat back quietly laughing.

445. Two DU Predictions
1. Georgie Boy just bought himself the number one spot on next week's Top 10 Conservative Idiots. Though I suppose we do have plenty of time left for him to top himself.

and this one is more speculative....

2. Some spokesperson or pundit is going to make the Top 10 Conservative Idiots making an assinine comment to explain this away or somehow blame it on Germany.

His recent behavior demonstrates why the US is having problems in Iraq and Afghanistan.

I wonder how Bush refers to her...Angie? Angel? Honey? Sweetheart? in a society that uses the titles "Herr" and "Frau" even in informal situations?

499. This is pornographic...the guy needs some serious help.
I'm stunned. Each time you think you've gaged "the horror" he comes back and ups the ante.

This is not one of the worst things he's done, I realize, but it is one of the most revealing.
He thinks he owns everything, it's all there for his strange and disgusting amusement. Can you
imagine, this creep comes up and does this to you. She's shocked, then she's had it (raises her
arms), then he looks the guilty part and flees, the German Chancellor looking to make sure he's
gone.

Personally, I can't stand guys who do this. I've seen it now and then and I immediately think, what
a creep that guy is. I never revise my opinion...and this is guys who do this to their wives (kidding).

Shame on Bush. He's been a bad boy, right to bed now, no treat.
